Hamilton can match Senna, Prost in Austria - but he's not too fussed

Hamilton can match Senna, Prost in Austria - but he's not too fussed

Lewis Hamilton was unmoved regarding Mercedes' pursuit of an all-time Formula 1 record set by his idol Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost at this weekend's Austrian Grand Prix. If Hamilton or team-mate Valtteri Bottas are triumphant in Spielberg, it will be Mercedes' 11th consecutive win, tying the all-time record set by the legendary McLaren duo in 1988.

Hamilton has secured eight of the Silver Arrows' perfect 10 so far and appears to have hit top gear in recent weeks, reeling off four consecutive victories to open up a 36-point lead over Bottas.

The five-time world champion already has many records to his name, but insists the spot of history on offer this weekend will not add any added motivation.

"Maybe the engineers have a list of the records and that's something they take pride in," Hamilton said.

"It's awesome when you can break a record, but it's nowhere near the top of the list of priorities on a weekend.

"But it is remarkable to be in the 125th year of Mercedes-Benz history and be a part of helping them break barriers and records. I'm very proud to be part of that cycle."

Who will win the Austrian GP?
